Hello - my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you today. HOA rules are oftentimes unreasonable and impractical and enforced only when it assists the ones in charge. It is a very unfortunate situation when they are enforced unfairly in situations such as yours appears to be. The HOA has a right to enforce the rules against you and not against others, but to address the situation I would suggest you turn in a violation notice as to the others violating the rules and state that when they enforce the rules against them you will comply with pet rules. I am afraid, however, that if they want to enforce the rules as to you that they can do so assuming they can prove you violated the rules and not against others although I would absolutely send them a response pointing out the unfairness of their violation notice to you and that you expect the rules to be enforced consistenly as to everyone or not at all. I hope this helps you and sorry you are having to deal with this in a place that is suppossed to be enjoyed.
Yes, unfortunately the law will protect them with selective enforcement. I know it is unfair, but they can get away with doing so under the law and I would definately let them know you do not appreciate it considering your situation. Thanks and I hope this helps! All the best, David
